If auditioning for a non-musical play, there will be cold readings from the script handed to you at the audition.

THE LARAMIE PROJECT
Adults & Ages 13-18
are needed for this award-winning drama.
7pm February 16 or 17
Directed by Chad-Alan Carr
In October 1998, Matthew Shepard, age 21, was brutally beaten and left to die on the plains outside Laramie, Wyoming. Because he was gay. Over the next year, Moisés Kaufman and a team of writers and actors took six trips to Laramie, where they interviewed citizens of the town – some unconnected with the tragedy, and some intimately involved. Using Moment Work, the company created The Laramie Project, a stunning theatrical examination of the immediate reactions of Matt Shepard’s community to the murder and to the underlying bigotry and hatred that enabled it. The Laramie Project has since been seen by over 30 million people around the world.
This production is an official event of the 4th Annual Gettysburg Pride.
Performances will be held at GCT

A NOTE ABOUT CASTING & AUDITION ETIQUETTE
A great deal of thought goes into casting for each production with many different factors being taken into consideration including but not limited to: chemistry with other actors, height, vocal range/ability, dance ability, projection/articulation ability, and almost always schedule availability.
Not all casting decisions will please everyone, but it is important to respect the decisions and accept the casting and move forward in a positive light for the good of the theatre and everyone involved. Discussing or questioning casting is against policy at GCT. Good performers can find something new to learn about and improve their skills during any production. Bad performers are lazy, they complain, are disruptive, and don’t show good teamwork skills to support the good of the overall production. Be part of a team and a theatre family.
Per GCT Handbook, it is expected that you will refrain from discussing or questioning casting. Additionally, if cast, please do not post anything about casting on social media outlets until such time you see that GCT posts it on their Facebook page first. The reason for this is that some people may have not been cast or may not have been contacted yet by GCT and seeing or hearing things from others about auditions/casting can sometimes cause unnecessary anxiety or hurt feelings before the theatre has had the chance to contact everyone that auditioned.
Be respectful and supportive of others during the audition process. For some actors it may be their very first time auditioning for a show anywhere.
Relax and have fun. We want you to enjoy yourself and show us your best audition.
